  • Billy Can 'Blue Stream'™

    Billy Can® grasses are made for Aussie backyards and look great in both contemporary and eclectic garden layouts.

    Use them for garden border plantings, or as a filler in-between existing shrubs. 

    Cool colour

    Blue Stream ™ (Dianella hybrid) offers gardens a beautiful swathe of colour in dense clumps of broad, light blue foliage. This vigorous variety produces many side shoots that emerge from the ground around the plant base. In late spring many royal blue berries provide a spectacular display just above the foliage. Consider using Blue Stream to create a natural garden border or to plant among low growing flowering plants. As a mid-sized Dianella, Blue Stream offers an interesting colour option to the typical green landscape and to smaller courtyard gardens. 

    Best growing conditions

    Blue Stream™ is particularly suited to climate Zone 1 with dry summers. It can be planted further northwards in Zones 2 and 4 where wet summers normally prevail but in theses wet summer Zones it may need to be pruned at the end of summer to remove old foliage. During the autumn and winter new foliage will develop. Best Climate Zones: 1 to 3.

    How to plant

    Blue Stream preferes a sun to part shade location. Plant 50 cm apart. This variety is very hardy, drought tolerant and low maintenance.

    Co-plant with other Billy Can® varieties

    Create a beautiful foliage display by combining the blue/green tufts of Blue Stream with low growing varigated Carex Everest, the beautifully cascading Lomandra Crackerjack or the brightly coloured Carex Everillo.
